Kylie Jennerâ€™s Officially Been Outed As the Lead Singer of Terror Jr
UPDATE:Â Nevermind. Kylie made a statement on Snapchat about how she’s not involved with Terror Jr at all, although tbh, that still seems kinda sus to us.
From the beginning of Terror Jrâ€™s public career, the popularity of the band has been buoyed by the rumors that their mysterious lead singer, known alternatively as â€œLisaâ€ and â€œPsycho Lisa,â€ was actually Kylie Jenner.
We asked Terror Jr via e-mail about this back in May, and while their official responseÂ then was, â€œWe do appreciate the mystery thus far :),â€ some new evidence has come out that pretty much confirmsÂ Kylie Jenner is the lead singer of a band and thereâ€™s nothing you can do about it.
A muck-raking fan put on their smarty pants and found out that Kylie Jenner was listed as the performer in Terror Jrâ€™s first single, â€œ3 Strikesâ€ onÂ the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishersâ€™ website.

If youâ€™re asking yourself, â€œwhy the fuck should I care about what the ASCAP says/ who are they anyway?â€ allow me to let you in on a little secret: theyâ€™re kind of a big deal.
The ASCAPâ€™s an organization that consists of more than 575,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers including famous people youâ€™ve actually heard of like Katy Perry, BeyoncÃ© and Bruce Springsteen.
The ASCAP helps collect licensing fees from radio stations, music venues, websites, bars, mobile apps to help make sure that the artists you love get as rich as they possibly can, which means their writing credits are way more accurate than your average Wikipedia page.Â
Obviously then, sinceÂ Mama Kris is all about that paper, you know she made sure Kylie’s name got on there from the very beginning.
Of course, thereâ€™s still a chance that this document could be doctored, but honestly, after listening to Terror Jrâ€™s debut EP, I already came to the conclusion that thereâ€™s no way Kylie Jenner isnâ€™t involved.
Plus how else does a band that comes out of literally nowhere have 7k followers and get verified on Twitter in just 6 months?
Being the upstanding journalists we are, weâ€™ve reached out to Terror Jr for comment and will update you if we hear back from them.
